I'm making Peter Reinhardt's recipe for Potato Rosemary Bread.
It calls for a biga made with 2 1/2 cups flour, so I now have at least 4 cups biga. Lotsa biga.
It seems strange that the recipe now wants me to use only 1 1/4 cups of the biga to make 2 loaves.
I know the extra can be frozen to use later, but why make so much to begin with?
Thanks very much.
